Lava bei La Florida

Leichte Wanderung durch ein Lavagebiet mit Weinanbau bei La Florida

Immer wieder beeindrucken die Formen und Farben der Lava.

Wir starten entlang des Weinbaus in den Ausläufern von La Geria. Auf dem Weg nach Westen verlassen wir die asphaltierten und nicht befestigten Straßen und laufen auf der jungen Lava, die der Vulkan “Nueces” im März 1736 produziert hat. Die fantastischen Formen und Farben der Lava bieten schöne Motive, auch für Fotografen.

Nach ca. 2 km machen wir in einer Lavaformation, die in eine Vertiefung eingebettet ist, eine windgeschützte Pause. Nach einem weiteren Kilometer erreichen wir die LZ 58, der wir ein kurzes Stück nach Süden folgen, bevor wir uns wieder nach Osten wenden und auf kleinen Pfaden durch die Lava hindurch den Rückweg antreten. Im weiteren Verlauf erreichen wir eine kleine Finca, die erneut zur Rast einlädt, bevor wir die letzten beiden Kilometer auf Picón und Lava zurücklegen.

Auf dieser Tour streifen wir auch gerne den geologischen Kontext der Insel, sofern bei den Teilnehmern ein Interesse daran besteht.

Außer den beiden “großen Pausen”, machen wir häufig einen kurzen Stop und erklären Kleinigkeiten am Wegesrand – aktuell hoffen wir (nach dem Regen) auf ein wenig Grün, so dass wir den Teilnehmern auch etwas über die Pflanzenwelt der Insel zeigen und erklären können.

Folgendes solltet ihr dabei haben: Sonnenschutz, ausreichend Wasser (ca. 1 l pro Person), Brotzeit, eine leichte Jacke – falls es windig wird, Fotoausrüstung, festes Schuhwerk/geschlossene Schuhe

Länge: ca. 6 km
Dauer: ca. 3 – 3,5 Stunden
Schwierigkeit: leicht und flach, ohne größere Anstiege
Terrain: überwiegend Lava, aber weitgehend sehr gut begehbar

Preis: 32 € pro Person

Treffpunkt: Bodega Bermejo

Circular walk Montaña Cardona

View from the top of Mta. Cardona

Easy and comfortable circumnavigation of Montaña Cardona with ascent to the crater rim.

We start our easy and relaxed hike on an unpaved road that takes us along vineyards and fruit orchards right into the lava fields in the outskirts of Timanfaya, where from 1730-1736 the biggest eruptions in history of Lanzarote took place. We approach the Montaña Cardona, a rather flat volcano, circle it on its eastern flank and take a first break at a surprising place.
Afterwards, we walk alongside its flank up to the edge of the crater with an impressive wide and all-round view. We walk along the wide, flat crater rim for a little while and can enjoy the landscape in peace and amazement before leaving it on another comfortable path. Now the path leads us into the half-open crater. Here we can admire the plants and several different kinds of lava.
This circular path impresses with its spectacular views on a mainly flat stretch of road, a short ascent is to be made on the way to the crater rim.

As always, there is a lot of interesting and entertaining information about history, flora and fauna as also geology on this tour.

You should have the following with you: sun protection, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person), snack, a light jacket – in case it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes.

Length: approx. 7 km
Duration: approx. 3 hours 30′
Difficulty: 1 of 5 – if you are afraid of heights it should be no problem, but please let us know in advance. Thank you.
Terrain: 2 of 5 – you should be able to walk on uneven ground in a stable way.

Price: 39 € per person

Meeting point: Church in Masdache

Geological excursion in Timanfaya – guided hike

Timanfaya landscape

We meet near Tinguaton, from where we take a gravel road straight into the heart of Timanfaya. We start our hike at the foot of a young volcano and walk on Picon (with a slight ascent) along an impressive lava river. The first absolute highlight is already waiting for us there. Let us surprise you!

Now we continue along the flank of the volcano Señalo, where a colourful and unexpectedly varied lava landscape awaits us. The many different, bizarre structures created by the volcanic eruptions in the 18th century invite you to take pictures. Now we also have a close look at one of the numerous “side craters” of the volcano. We can marvel at how many different ways there are for the lava to leave a volcano – thus forming interesting elements of the landscape. The further round trip takes place on the other side of the caldera, where easy terrain and a fantastic landscape with great views awaits us.

This landscape stimulates your imagination, touches your soul and makes you feel calm and devotional. A completely different world…

Note: The duration of barely 4 hours is due to the fact that there is so much to see and the participants get detailed explanations about plate tectonics, geology and volcanism and of course also about the many specialities of Lanzarote. In particular, the colourful structures in front of us are explained in detail in an entertaining but nevertheless scientific way.

Promise: This will be one of the most unforgettable tours you have ever experienced! If you think that lava landscape consists only of monotonous black rock and quickly becomes boring, we will teach you a better one today.

Money back guarantee if you don’t like it.
